ASEAN or Association of South-East Asian Nations is the 7th largest economy in the world, 3rd largest economy in Asia, and interestingly still growing. By having large economy, of course it is going to be among the focal points of the global market.
In order for ASEAN to keep growing and remain competitive, each country needs enough human resources. When we are talking about human capital or talent, means we need more people who are qualified to be part of the development.
At the end of the day, we must refer back to the fundamental of human resource which is education. Education is an effective traditional way of shaping the future generation and yes it will remain as the most important aspect in our life. Through education, we can produce civilized and educated society.
ASEAN consists of well-known countries like Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, and Vietnam. Many of the ASEAN members are developing rapidly and all countries need their future generation to retain the growth pattern of their respective countries.
To ensure the youths can administrate the economy of their country or businesses in private sector to enhance the economy, we need well-educated young generation. Well-educated here refers to the university graduates. We need all those bright minds or intellectuals to generate new ideas, innovate new technologies, and implement effective policies to strengthen the economy. Let's not talk about university or college drop-out now, only for this entry.
And here comes the main topic for this entry, 20 best universities in ASEAN.
